Ideas of stuff I want to use with my elementary school occupational therapy kids :) Occasionally other random OT related ones....
Website says: The chores you use for Chore of the Week can be the same set used for Work for Hire. It gives you more opportunities to get those numerous tasks accomplished by your kids. Work for Hire is optional, but since my kids don't receive an allowance and I don't buy them toys, they are always clamoring to make a little money. I'm encouraging work ethic while getting my home clean.

PLEASE DO THIS instead of using papers/tags! Ideally super small in upper hand corner opposite corner from dominant hand. Mostly helpful for staff coming in.

Comes off with an Expo dry erase marker and tissue at the end of the year. :)
Love it - would want to see that half the jump rope was duct taped a second color though so easier to see the contrast. Havent tried this but will. Former description says: teach a child to tie their shoes using a jump rope so they can see a larger view of what is happening.
